Making Pancakes Without Eggs

Whether you have dietary restrictions, allergies, or you eat vegan, you can still enjoy pancakes without egg in it! Eggs are used in pancakes to provide moisture, richness for fluffy pancakes, and structure to trap bubbles. While a pancake recipe with no egg will not yield the fluffy pancakes you might be used to, you can still create a delicious breakfast that tastes as good as it looks.

Common recipes for a pancake without eggs usually include substitutes such as applesauce, mashed bananas, or nut butter. These substitutions do change the flavor of the pancakes, but they will add structure and moisture to create a tasty morning treat. Flax eggs, flax seeds mixed with water, can also be used as an egg substitute which creates a gel-like substance that makes a great binder for your pancakes.

Once you mix together your ingredients, including your egg substitute, you’ll need to cook your pancakes a little differently as well. After all, the texture is different from a standard pancake and they have a tendency to burn easier, so it’s best to keep your heat on low to medium-low so they can cook all the way through. Just like a standard pancake, a pancake with no egg is ready to flip when the bubbles on the surface begin to pop. It may seem like you’re waiting a long time, especially with an egg substitute, but you’re more likely to get the perfect pancake this way.
